Windows XP is officially faster and better than Windows Vista (a.k.a. state the obvious).

Windows Vista pwned in benchmarking test... by Windows XP.

New tests have revealed that Windows XP with the beta Service Pack 3 has twice the performance of Vista, even with its long-awaited Service Pack 1.

Vista's first service pack, to be released early next year, is intended to boost the operating system's performance. However, when Vista with the Service Pack 1 (SP1) beta was put through benchmark testing by researchers at Florida-based software development company Devil Mountain Software, the improvement was not overwhelming, leaving the latest Windows iteration outshined by its predecessor.

Vista, both with and without SP1, performed notably slower than XP with SP3 in the test, taking over 80 seconds to complete the test, compared to the beta SP3-enhanced XP's 35 seconds.

everything you need to know about politics, summarized.

"What is the difference between a Democrat and a Republican? A Democrat blows, a Republican sucks."

"Allow me to explain how our federal government works. To begin with, by the federal government I mean Democrats and Republicans working together. And the only thing dumber than a Democrat or a Republican is when those pricks work together. You see, in our two-party system, the Democrats are the party of no ideas and the Republicans are the party of bad ideas. It usually goes something like this. A Republican will stand up in Congress and say, 'I've got a really bad idea.' And a Democrat will immediately jump to his feet and declare, 'And I can make it shittier.' "

"And there has to come a time, when Democrats and Rebuplicans must get together in a room, and just agree on what the fuck reality is."

"You can't be shown footage of a Land Rover running over a housecat, and then turn around and say, 'uh, the cat was trying to kill itself.' "
